    Forty-Eight Pages of Manuscript for an Abandoned Novel by John Crowley

    John Crowley. Monas. [N.p., n.d.]. Forty-eight pages of manuscript. Folio sheets on yellow-ruled paper. Approximately 13 x 8.5 inches. Rectos only. Written in calligraphic ink or pencil. This manuscript comprises a thirteen page summary of the novel and two complete chapters. "Monas is a story about the conflicts between two nations, and between two magical realms as well. The two nations are England and Ireland. The two magical realms are the ancient order of fairies, and the new order of powers brought into being -- or rather brought under man's sway -- by the operations of newly-invented Renaissance magic: Hermetic, cabalistic, micro-macrocosmic, angelic." Novel was eventually abandoned by Crowley. With corrections and notes by him. Some wear to leaves, some occasional soiling. Very good.
    John Crowley (b. 1942) is a writer of science fiction and fantasy, best known for his award-winning novel, Little, Big (1981) and his AEgypt series.
